Delicious Cafe @ 1 Utama - New, Revamped Menu
Forget about what you think you know about Delicious, as they are now under a new management with a brand yummylicious new menu rolled out for all. I was there a couple of days back to savour their offerings, in conjunction with the festive season of Ramadan as well. Malaysia’s first ‘Grand Café’ by Envictus International Holdings Limited, Delicious in 1 Utama is a refreshing change, from the interior decor to the food choices. Check out what we had that evening.

|Nice interior and decor of Delicious 1 Utama|
|Delicious Cafe, with a new logo and facade|
It's a whole new management, from the same folks that have grown Texas Chicken and San Francisco Coffee into many Malaysians’ favorites. Upon entering the restaurant, I was wowed by the new interior which is a complete revamp from the previous blue theme. Let's start with our feast shall we?
|Buka puasa with their home made popcorn and dates|
|Salt and pepper squid - RM29|
Together with a whole bunch of bloggers, we opened fast together at Delicious, with their home made popcorn and dates. The appetizers that came next were rather large, but nice, namely the Salt and Pepper Squid. Served with some greens on the side, and sauce, this is good for a quick bite, or to open your palate for more noms to come.
|Muchacho Nacho Platter - RM30|
Meant to be shared, the rather large Muchaho Nacho Platter comes with beef chilli con carne, guacamole, sour cream, cheese dip, jalapenos and pico de gallo. We literally finished up the beef chilli con carne, along with the nachos.
|Sawa-duck-ka-salad - RM28|
|One in a Melon - RM26|
We tried two of their signature salads, one with meat, one with lots of watermelon, namely the Sawa-duck-ka-salad and the One in a Melon salad. The Sawa-duck-ka salad has these really nice shredded duck confit meat, complete with pomelo flesh, tomato julienne, mint, thai basil, basil, spring onions, with Thai dressing. In fact one could have this salad as a meal on its own! The One in A Melon salad however is a real refreshing change. Inside you have lots of watermelon cubes, with lemon dressing, rocket, feta cheese, olives, mint, pine nuts, interesting balsamic pearls, and yoghurt ravioli.
|Saved By The Bell-acan - RM18|
Belacan fried chicken wings? Yes please. My all-time favourite, this dish is aptly named Saved By The Bell-acan, served with four pieces of fried chicken wings, doused in fragrant belacan, tasting really crispy and all. Take it with the Thai dipping sauce by the side and you're good to go!
|Salmon Else - RM22|
Totally fresh, go for their Salmon Else if you're looking for Italian Sashimi. The talented chef uses only fresh Atlantic Salmon, doused in virgin lemon olive oil, lemon curd, horseradish sauce, ikura, radish and dill to present a platter of salmon goodness.
Burgers & Sandwiches
|Mad as a Croque Madame - RM30|
|Cheese? What cheese?|
We were served with the very sinful Mad as a Croque Madame dish, made up of lots and lots of cheese sauce, cheddar cheese, turkey ham, soft cooked egg on top and toasted bread. If you love yourself some toasted bread with lots of cheese, topped with egg, then this will fit right up your alley. I quite like it myself.
|Go Cheesed Lightning - RM45|
Just when we thought we had enough cheese for the day, here comes the star of the day, their Go Cheese Lightning Burger. Touted to be the ultimate burger dish at Delicious, we were served with a 100% US Black Angus (80% meat, 20% fat minced all beef patty, 180gms) burger. Good stuff, the meat itself literally melted in our mouth.
|Country Roast with the Most - RM39|
|Dibs on the Beef Ribs - RM55|
Meat, lots of it. Go got their Country Roast with the most for 1/2 marinated country bird, served with mashed potato, coleslaw, corn bread and au jus. Do give them 30 minutes of cooking time to prepare this dish. Dibs on the Beef Ribs! Good stuff here, we have these really tender and moist Australian beef ribs, literally falling off the bones. Savour the goodness, complete with sweet potato crisscut fries, coleslaw, corn bread and onion rings on the side.
|Seashells by the Seashore Aglio Olio - RM42|
|Duck Con-Fit for a King - RM33|
Luxurious pasta dishes, we had the Seashells by the Seashore Aglio Olio first, which comes on a plate full of fresh tiger prawns, squid, and mussels. This aglio olio pasta dish is done just right, especially when they throw in sundried tomatoes, cili padi, olives, capers, basil and parsley into the mix. If you're a duck lover, then you must try their Duck Con-Fit for a King, and it's really tasty. Loving the fine duck confit meat.
Dessert & Drinks
|Panna 'Kota' Kinabalu - RM22|
|Interesting and sweet drinks to complement your meal at Delicious Cafe|
We ended our rather heavy meal at Delicious Cafe 1 Utama with some sweet dessert in the form of the Panna 'Kota' Kinabalu which is essentially a traditional panna cota offering with a twist of bandung. Served with vanilla ice cream on the side, it's the perfect end to a good meal out at Delicious Cafe 1 Utama.
